Okurrr, it's 2019 and Barbie ain't just that leggy blonde who's dressed 100% in pink anymore. In fact, over the years Barbie has grown from model Barbie to Doctor Barbie and more. And now she's gonna be adding 'astronaut' to her growing range of jobs and we are LIVING.
Aiming to celebrate women's contributions to science and technology research, Barbie is collabing with the ESA to create a one-of-a-kind doll. Samantha Cristoforetti is the only active female astronaut in Europe and Miss Barbie will be made in her likeness. Yup, we are screaming too.
Since Barbie is like, SUPER big in a kid's life growing up (don't even lie you had at least five outfits for each of your dolls), the message is pretty imp. The collab aspires to encourage more girls to work in science, space and engineering through this, and we're in love. A role model that shows you there's no limit - reach for the MOON baby!
